Spent this afternoon fighting a quick solo campaign between two Italian city states
Drew up a ladder with 5 segments. Bottom segment my city top segment enemy city. for combat purposes they are Arable with BUA which must be a city. Other segments are randomly assigned to be Hilly, Arable and Littoral. Campaign starts in the middle segment. Battle is fought. Loser moves one segment back towards their city. Loser dices for lost elements 4,5,6 they return. Winner does the same but adds one to dice roll. Winner is the first to win a battle in the enemies home segment.
I won the campaign with a direct home run!
Campaign was fought using 6mm figures. Sorry I didn't take pictures.
I have drawn up similar campaigns for Roman V Parthia, Norman Conquest and Hundred Years War.
